It is likely William is travelling up from Windsor, where he just moved into a new home with Kate Middleton and their kids.

Their decisions followed a Buckingham Palace statement released earlier today (September 8) regarding the 96-year-old monarch's health.

It read: "Following further evaluation this morning, the Queen's doctors are concerned for Her Majesty's health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision. The Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral."

After that, Commons Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle told MPs: "I know I speak on behalf of the entire House when I say that we send our best wishes to Her Majesty the Queen and that she and the royal family are in our thoughts and prayers at this moment."

The Queen has been suffering from "episodic mobility issues" for a number of weeks now. It is understood those issue have got worse.

Britain's longest reigning sovereign and the world's oldest monarch has been forced to miss a number of events as of late.

On Wednesday (September 7) she postponed a virtual Privy Council meeting after being advised by doctors to rest.

That came after she was visited at Balmoral by Boris Johnson and Liz Truss, accepting a resignation from the former and appointing the latter as the new Prime Minister.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said after the Privy Council meeting was postponed: "After a full day yesterday, Her Majesty has this afternoon accepted doctors’ advice to rest.

"This means that the Privy Council meeting that had been due to take place this evening will be rearranged."

Truss said today: "The whole country will be deeply concerned by the news from Buckingham Palace this lunchtime.

"My thoughts – and the thoughts of people across our United Kingdom – are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time."
